Gainesville Motorcycle Accidents Attorney

Habla Español?

Gainesville Motorcycle Accident attorneys, of the Law Office of Alba & Yochim P.A., represent the victims of serious motorcycle or scooter collisions. According to a recent report by the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles, there are more than 9,000 accidents involving motorcycles on average each year in Florida. However, this figure includes only the accidents that have been reported, and therefore the actual quantity of motorcycle accidents is likely much greater. For accidents that have been reported, close to 90% result in an injury or fatality. Hundreds of these motorcycle accidents occur each year in Alachua and Marion Counties.

Motorcycle and scooter accidents, like pedestrian and bicycle accidents, can be extremely devastating because the victims of these types of accident are more vulnerable to injury, as opposed to automobile occupants, who at least have the protection provided by the vehicle. In contrast to a pedestrian or bicycling accident, though, most motorcycle accidents typically involve a substantially higher rate of speed. Basic rules of physics provides that the rate of speed an object is traveling is a significant factor in what happens to the object upon impact. Unfortunately, in the case of motorcycle accidents, the objects are actual people.

Just a few of the types of Motorcycle and Scooter Accident cases are:

A common inquiry of the victims of motorcycle accidents pertains to insurance coverage. In Florida, insurance is not required to operate a motorcycle or scooter, as opposed to automobiles, which are lawfully operated only if carrying at least the minimum insurance coverage required under Florida law. Where the driver of an automobile is found to be the at-fault party in a motorcycle accident, the insurance policy in effect at the time for that driver and that vehicle is generally the source of compensation. In cases where insurance policy is insufficient to compensate for injuries or death, and the motorcyclist has uninsured or underinsured motorist coverage, additional compensation may be available.

The Motorcycle Accident Lawyers of the Law Office of Alba & Yochim P.A. also represent the injured and family members of those killed while a passenger on a motorcycle or scooter. Some accidents involve the negligence of another motorist. However, many motorcycle accidents involve the negligence of the person operating the motorcycle. We represent the victims—whether passenger or driver, who through no fault of their own sustained serious or catastrophic injury caused by the negligence of another. Our Injury and Wrongful Death Attorneys represent motorcycle and scooter accident victims in Gainesville, Ocala, and surrounding cities in Marion or Alachua County.

Although the more common motorcycle accident scenario involves the driver or passenger of a motorcycle or scooter being injured or killed by car, in the reverse, some accidents involve a negligent motorcyclist who causes a separate motor vehicle collision. Inexperienced, aggressive, and reckless riders can also result in serious motorcycle accidents. If you or a loved one were involved in a motor vehicle collision, and you suspect that it may have been caused by the negligence of another, then it is important that you consult with an attorney as early as possible.
